Trudy Kuhn BA (Hons) Dip SMRT
I qualified as a Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist with the North London School of Sports Massage in 2005. Since then I have worked in physiotherapy clinics in Surrey treating a wide range of clients including international sportspeople. Many of my clients are keen amateur athletes but I also treat many people suffering from work related and postural issues. Several clients come to regain range of movement after surgery.
I competed as an 800m & cross country runner in my teens but later suffered badly from Achilles tendonitis which eventually resulted in my having decompression surgery on both tendons.
In 2002, the year after the operations, I ran the London Marathon to raise money for an orthopaedic charity. I became very involved in distance running & fitness & decided to change career by studying for the YMCA Personal Trainer’s Diploma.
After successfully completing this & working as a Personal Trainer I became increasingly interested in sports injuries & rehabilitation. I gained my Sports & Remedial Massage diploma in 2005 and have been practising ever since. My personal training knowledge is an invaluable aid for advising clients on remedial exercise.
I currently work alongside The Surrey Osteopaths at the Westcroft Leisure Centre in Carshalton. I am fully insured and possess a First Aid certificate.
I was keen road & cross country runner belonging to both Sutton Runners and South London Harriers. I competed over distances from 5k up to the marathon & have completed the London Marathon three times. I still enjoy running but these days I train purely to stay fit.
